Divine Orbs and Exalted Orbs actually have the same drop rate, but Exalted Orbs are worth so much more in trade value because there's no easy vendor recipe for them and because they're consumed when you craft certain meta-mods onto items.
Out of these two currency items, GGG would actually prefer the Divine Orb effect to be rarer, so that unique items with good rolls matter more, and so that players can exalt-craft their items more frequently.
PoE 3.19 made two changes that will impact this. Firstly, changed the cost of crafting metamods so that they cost Divine Orbs rather than Exalted Orbs. Secondly, changed the 6-link vendor recipe to grant 20 Orbs of Fusing rather than a Divine Orb.
This change will result in Exalted Orbs being far more available for crafting and Divine Orbs less available for rerolling mods on items.
Exalted Orb enchants a rare item with a new random modifier. Exalted Orbs are high-value poe orbs that play a crucial role in the in-game economy. Their primary purpose is to craft high-end rare items. Because of this, it is regarded as the “gold standard” currency for trading between players, with many trade deals listed in terms of Exalted Orbs. Since the average player does not have the means to craft high-end items, the average player typically trades Exalted Orbs for other valuable equipment instead of consuming them.
The drop level of Exalted Orb is 35 and the average drop rate is about 0.055%. In other words, the average drop hour of Exalted Orb is around 100 hours. Actually, the drop chance is random. Exalted Orbs can be dropped by slain monsters, chests, and destructible containers. They also drop from Arcanist's Strongboxes and doing beastcrafting recipe(A Stack of 10 Random Currency vendor recipe), etc. It is one of the rarest currency items. You can do the following tips for increasing the drop chance of Exalted Orbs.
Divination Scarabs improve the drop rate of Exalted Orb divination cards.

Farming currency in areas above your level, the currency drop chance is not increased. However, the currency items' drop rate will decrease if a monster level is two levels lower than your character level(After level 68, you will not get a penalty).
High-level maps always mean more chances to drop more valuable items and currencies. Choose suitable maps for yourself, fighting in the maps, and enjoy more Exalted Orbs.

Exalted Orb enchants a rare item with a new random modifier. Right-click an Exalted Orb then left click a rare item to apply it. Rare items can have up to six random modifiers. The item's Catalyst quality increases the chance of applying a modifier which matches the quality type. Removes 20% Quality applied by Catalysts on use.
For powerful or wealthy players looking to use PoE Exalted Orbs on powerful rare items, there are two primary methods to consume them. The first is through direct use of the orb, adding a random affix to a rare item that does not already have six affixes. The other is to add high-end affixes through mastercrafting by paying a fixed amount of Exalted Orbs. The latter method grants crafters access to the special meta-crafting mods which cannot be rolled naturally.
A rare will not always have 6 properties, in those cases, an exalted orb adds one more. So if you have an INSANELY good rare that is already amazing with 4 or 5 properties, you can exalt it to make it even more godlike. But really, you're better off using it as currency to buy items that are already good, as it should only be used as crafting material if you are already in the elite tier in terms of gear and wealth.
Since the drop rate or Exalted Orb is low, you have to kill more enemies to get it.
Looting Divination cards is one of the best way to farm Exalted Orbs.
My favorite way is to sell valuable skill gems for Exalted Orbs. When building a character, one may need a level 21 skill gem with 23% quality. It is worth several Exalted Orbs.
(1) Find a profitable Skill Gem at https://poe.ninja/challenge/skill-gems. For example, Molten Strike of level 21 can sell 7 Exalted Orbs and Ice Nova of the maximum level for 5 Exalted Orbs. This page has listed many valuable skill gems that can trade for Exalted Orbs.
(2) Buy the gem with a low level from https://poe.trade/. As you can see, a level 1 Molten Strike costs an Orb of Alteration.
(3) Using Gemcutter’s Prism to increase the Gem to Quality 20.
(4) Equip the Gem and upgrade it automatically while playing the game.
(5) When leveling up to maximum, use Vaal Orb to corrupt it.
(6) Sell the gem for Exalted Orbs.
